Abstract

The oral microbial community represents the best-characterized consortium associated with the human host. There are strong correlations between the qualitative composition of the oral microbiota and clinically healthy or diseased states. However, additional studies are needed to elucidate the mechanisms that define these microbial/host relationships.
